Zoey is a normal sixteen-year-old girl with a bright future ahead of her. That's why she's being offered a spot in a very exclusive private school in Scotland. Upon her arrival, she meets Hunter and they hit it off straight away. Hunter's funny and cute, and she falls for him quickly. But Hunter's also free spirited and adventurous, two qualities that get him in trouble most of the time.
But conquering her flame's heart, even though he's never been one to play fair...or faithful, aren't Zoey's on...more
Explain to me why American authors always have it raining when their character arrives in Scotland? It's always grey, gloomy, dreary, damp or raining and cold enough to freeze those American bones and it is just not reality people! It drives me bloody crazy. If you visit Central Scotland in winter it is milder than the whole of the northern US. So why are we portrayed as some gloomy, polar temperatures country? Most winters my part of Scotland never sees snow and it is the US that shivers throug...more

This was an intriguing read but I found it a little jumpy and could have been constructed better. I agree with what other people have said and that it felt like a teaser or the first few chapters of a book rather than a novelette as there wasn't an obvious beginning, middle and end, or plot. I wanted to feel more from the characters and get to know them better before everything started to happen, and I needed some more detail on locations, and background to flesh it out and help me to understand...more

Joey Sanders always wanted to get away from her problems and from her family. It's not that she didn't love them, they were just.... different. When she got accepted to Mount Park Manor for a school year, she knew that this would be the opportunity to stop being noticed and find out more about who she really is. Making new friends and possibly falling for a gorgeous guy is exactly what she needs. But with moving shadows, unbelievable dreams, and something creeping in the dark, her and her new fr...more

Can Someone Say Reincarnation?

O M G. Reading this book was the best. I've always been a fan of reincarnation and this book really seems like it has the element.
If I could I would give this book a hundred stars. It was really good.
With only 32 pages I can honestly say this book is a keeper.
Just when you thought that you've found a great book it's finished after a chapter.

Zoey is an ordinary girl, her mam is a physic but Zoey doesn't want a part of that so she flies from America to Scotland and inside a new boarding school. There she meets hot rebel Hunter, cute boho-like southern Pam and geeky yet still good looking Eric. After she tells them her mysterious dream and they find a picture of the guy she dreamed about inside a book, he's a very old and very dead prince, they began t...more

That was a tiny, pleasantly dull story...that ended in a cliffhanger.

I was looking for a mindless quick read and downloaded this for free on my kindle.

I am having a tough time forming an opinion on this one as it was so short that it barely got started before it ended. This appears to be part of a continuing novelette series.

I will refrain from giving my final opinion until I have had a chance to see the series through. What I can say based on this first installment is that this story seems geared to the YA audience with the typical girl who is trying to escape s...more

I picked this up because I was looking for a quick read and you can't really argue with free...unfortunately, this story has a number of faults that resulted in a lower rating than I would have liked to give: it feels like the first chapters of a longer story, without its own story arc; there are major inconsistencies (for example, the heroine arrives at boarding school three weeks into the semester, somehow on the same day as the love interest does as well (which is taken for granted) and then...more
Short story that gets you started in the enchanted castle series. The story does leave you more questions than answers so it does its job to get you to want to read the next book.

The story does seem to be on fast forward since she is able to settle into school so quickly when she joins in 3 weeks late. It is possible they sent the course list to her since they knew she was coming in late, but it is odd that she is having to take a test on the second day of school. There are a few other confusing...more

I thought this book was a great teen novella. You enter into the story with Zoey, a girl who is escaping some sort of past. She is starting a new school year at an old castle in Scotland. She plops her stuff down in her room and notices that someone else's stuff is in the room. A guy soon comes in and thinks her room is his. I liked the boy, Hunter's, sarcasm. The enchanted castle holds mystery as Zoey has a dream about a man who used to live there and some strange happenings surround the teens...more

Very cute, sexy, mysterious novelette. Zoey goes to school in a castle in Scotland her senior year and meets Hunter who tries to "claim" her room as his. Of course, he's simply flirting. The sexual tension is there throughout and you just get the feeling that Hunter is the dang sexiest guy alive.

Pam and Eric are the other two main characters, and the four of them explore the castle, only to find a photo that is identical to Zoey. As they explore they realize that the place is haunted.

I'm impressed with this author! Great story telling and her imagination just blows me away! This is another one of hers that kick butt! Her characters seem to just come to life.The stories that she tells are so engrossing that before you know it.... you are done and begging for more.
I expected something more to happen, but I will have to read the second part too
Good read...for about 30 minutes.

I liked it. It was a great beginning to a book... but then it was over. This should be labeled as a teaser, not book one. It definitely make you want to buy book 2,which luckily is 100 times longer than this one. I recommend this TEASER if you don't have a problem spending 2.99 for the real book. Well onto the next book for me... because I was very much sucked in by this one.

Short book=Short review

This was an enticing, intriguing novelette leading into a larger series. It was interesting and suspenseful, but I thought it lacked adequate character development. However, I won’t dock its stars down for that, because I believe the writer will do more of that in later installments and I did enjoy it. The premise is fascinating with a good deal of mystery and I look forward to finding out what happens next!

This was a fast read, but really cute with likeable characters. Add to that a Gothic castle setting and you've got yourself a nice read. I liked how the haunted castle wove the past and present together, giving the story a touch of history. I also liked the ending, even if it did leave me hanging a bit. This is something I've come to expect from Chrissy Peebles' books! I'll definitely read part 2 when it is released.
Jen Wylie
An interesting story idea, but this novelette read more like just the first few chapters of a book, no start-middle-end. Quite a few errors, as well as discontinuities, and not enough needed info given, leaving me confused.
cute but focuses overly long on the uninteresting stuff. still kind of along the line of most teen romances right now

Good book

it's a ok book , it's for young adults or teens . I'm going to read the second book to see if I get a better feel for the story . I was glad it was only a hour long read
Another reader said, "An interesting story idea, but I don't think it was executed right. It didn't flow right and some things just didn't make any sense." - This is exactly how I felt.
An interesting story idea, but I don't think it was executed right. It didn't flow right and some things just didn't make any sense.
I really liked this book and thought I might buy the next edition that continues the story from the end of this chapter.

I read this book and I wanted to know what happened next. I am waiting for the next one to come out.

Cute YA book. It's a quick read and entertaining in a fairy tale sort of way.
